ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT
HENNA BROW TINTING
WHAT ARE HENNA BROWS?
Henna Brows is a fast-growing trend in the beauty industry. It is a form of eyebrow tinting that is used to stain the skin beneath the eyebrow hairs. If you are not blessed with naturally dense, beautiful brows, it is time for you to turn to henna brow tinting. You can flaunt gorgeous, thicker and denser eyebrows by tinting your brows with natural henna products.
Henna is a 100% plant-derived, vegan dye that has been used for centuries on hair and skin. It is gentle on the skin and doesn’t contain lead or ammonia. It also doesn’t require hydrogen peroxide, so it can be safely used on anyone who is allergic to hydrogen peroxide. By tinting your brows with Henna, you can ditch your brow pencil & shadows and still flaunt fabulous looking brows that last for up to 8 weeks on your brow hair.
BENEFITS OF TINTING BROWS WITH HENNA
100% Pure & Natural
Henna is 100% pure and natural and is probably the safest dye you are ever going to find. It has been used for centuries to dye skin and hair.
Cover up the Grays in Your Brows
Did you spot gray hair in your brows while doing your makeup? Don’t worry; Henna can easily cover your graying brows without causing any skin-related side effects.
Make Your Brows Look Denser & Heavier
If you are not blessed with a thick pair of eyebrows, you can consider Henna Brows. Applying henna to your brows will help make your brows look denser & heavier.

WHAT DOES THE PROCESS LOOK LIKE?
The first step for Henna Brows is all about exfoliating, cleansing and removing any oils from the skin. This is to ensure that your skin is super clean, oil free, and ready for the Henna tint.
Now, it’s time to precisely map your brows. After careful measuring, the artist will draw on your enhanced brow shape. You will have input about your ideal shape before the process goes ahead.
It’s time for the Henna! This part of the process is delicate and very carefully applied. The Henna has to be pushed onto the skin to ensure it sits in between the hairs to give you that fuller effect. Once it is evenly applied and the lines are super sharp, it will sit there for about 15 – 25 minutes. When the tint is done developing, it is wiped away and your eyebrows are then waxed or tweezed to complete a high definition effect. As a finishing touch, a special brow oil is applied to seal in the Henna Brow tint for longer lasting results!

TIPS & TRICKS
FOR MAKING THE HENNA TINT LAST LONGER
TIP # 1
~ Follow the Provided After Care Instructions ~
Don’t Touch Your Brows
Touching your brows with fingers, pressing a towel against them, and basically any kind of contact can physically remove pigmented skin cells and make the shadow fade. Try to avoid touching your henna brows unless it’s absolutely necessary.
Keep Them Completely Dry for 24 Hours
While this is the most basic rule of Henna Brows after care, sometimes people don’t take it seriously, thinking, what possible damage could just plain old water do to what is essentially a temporary tattoo. Well, it can do a lot of damage actually! Henna needs some time to settle into the skin, so no washing the area, no swimming, no jacuzzis, ideally for 24 hours. If you’re taking a shower, be careful not to get any droplets on your brows. Clean your face with damp cotton pads, avoiding the brows.
Sweating is also getting your brows wet, so try to avoid that as much as possible. No exercise or other strenuous activities (if you can avoid them). Exposing yourself to heat and sunlight can make you sweat even if you’re not doing anything so try to avoid that if you have any control over it.
Avoid steam for 24 hours. Yes, exposure to steam also counts as getting your brows wet. In fact, it’s worse! Steam is water in the form of gas, and as such it can get right into your pores and wash out the henna from within them. So, no hot shower and it’s best to avoid cooking. Okay, not all cooking activities produce steam, but if they produce any kind of heat that will cause you to sweat, skip it and just get takeout. But nothing too spicy! Again – sweat alert.
Avoid Direct Sunlight!
Sun radiation fades colors in general, so if you expose your henna brows to it often and for long stretches of time, your brow hairs may lighten a bit.
TIP # 2
~ Adjust Your Skincare and Make Up Routine ~
Rethink Your Skincare
Most of us use skincare that has at least some anti-aging or brightening ingredients. These accelerate skin cell turnover, and if they reach the skin of the brows, tinted skin cells will be replaced with non-tinted ones faster. Additionally, brightening ingredients may lighten the shade of the brow hairs slightly. Switch to something light and natural, or avoid the brow area.
Absolutely no Oils on or Around Your Brows
Oils remove henna from the skin, so avoid getting them on or around the brows. If your skincare is oil-based, switch it to something that’s not. Makeup often contains oils, so check the ingredients of your foundation, although it would be better to totally avoid makeup around the area.
Avoid Applying Make Up Around the Brows
If you apply makeup close to your henna brows, there are several factors here that could make the shadow fade from your skin faster. First, the act of applying makeup can take away tinted cells. There’s the question of how the formula of the makeup will react with the henna. And finally, any makeup you apply to your face has to be removed from it at some point, and harsh cleansers in combination with the act of rubbing a cotton pad or whatever you use can wipe the tint from your skin. Of course, this won’t happen in one go but it can contribute to premature fading or patchiness.
Blot the Skin Around the Brows From Time to Time
Our skin produces oils which are necessary for keeping it hydrated and protected. However, these oils affect the henna on your skin and make the shadow fade prematurely.
A way to slightly diminish the exposure of your henna brows to sebum, you can get a pack of blotting paper and blot the area around your brows a few times throughout the day. This will remove the oils the skin on your forehead produces and stop it from migrating into your brows (you don’t see or feel this, but gravity does its thing and liquids naturally seep downwards).
Don’t blot your brows directly – this can damage the shadow more than letting the sebum the skin under the brows produces sit there. This might make a difference if your skin is really oily. If it’s on the drier side and doesn’t produce that much sebum, you can skip this.
Get Henna Tints Regularly
One interesting thing brow techs reveal is that clients who get their brows tinted with henna regularly and consistently have the henna shadow last on their skin longer. After a series of henna tints spaced out every month or so, the shadow will gradually get to 2+ weeks of longevity. That said, don’t overdo it. If you get henna tints too frequently, your skin may get overly dried out, start reacting to it and you can develop allergies. Plus, while occasional henna makes the hairs of your brows stronger, too much of it can go in the opposite direction and cause them to become fragile and in the most extreme cases, lead to brow hair loss.
Drink Enough Water
I know this sounds totally unrelated to your brow treatment, but hear me out. Drinking a lot of water prevents your skin from getting dehydrated. Dehydrated skin sheds. If your brows start shedding, the tint will fade fast. Therefore, lots of water is one of the ways how to make henna brows last longer!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If you have been thinking about getting semi permanent brows, but haven’t been brave enough to pull the trigger, Henna Brows are a fantastic way to try out a precisely measured brow shape before committing to a cosmetic brow tattoo. Henna is a type of tint that casts a sheer shadow on your skin, creating the illusion of depth and fullness. Henna tint stays on the skin for up to 7 days and on the bow hair for up to 8 weeks.

- Wheat or essential oil allergy or sensitivities
- Have used Accutane within the last year, or are currently on any acne medications or retinoids.
- Sunburnt or irritated skin.
- Skin condition on the area to be treated.
- Steroid use.
- Henna will work best on clients who have healthy skin
- Skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema will mean the henna won’t last as long
- Thicker brow hair (lasts longer)
- Little brow hair (will last on the hair however the henna on the skin to design a desired shape won’t last)
The skin is always releasing oils, renewal of skin cells, exposed to environmental factors, which means the henna will be affected the same.
The appointment will take approximately 60 minutes. First the brows are measured and sketched to reach as much symmetry as possible. Followed by the application of the Henna which sits on the skin for 15-25 minutes.
No, it’s not. It is not a tattoo, it is not invasive, it does not hurt. It simply stains the skin and tints the hair.
Like anything, results do vary, however, most of the time you can expect the skin stain to gradually fade over 5-7 days and the hair tint up to 8 weeks. As previously mentioned, this is not guaranteed. Sometimes, the henna just doesn’t take well to certain people’s skin. Your lifestyle also plays a big part in the longevity i.e. swimming, excessive sweating, using face products on the eye area etc. will all result in your henna brows fading faster than usual.
Yes, they do. As your skin cells regenerate the color will fade, and as your hairs fall out and new ones grow, the color will be taken with them. Henna only tints the epidermis, and is not the same as semi-permanent makeup which goes to lower layers of the skin and stays there for years.
It is a safe alternative to other types of dyes and tints. It is vegan friendly and the henna dye is free of any peroxide activators, which means that even people with sensitive skin can opt for it. Another big difference between Henna Brows and eyebrow tint is longevity.
Allergic reactions are extremely rare. If an allergic reaction happens it can show immediately or after a few days following the tint. If you are concerned or a highly allergic individual a patch test may be arranged upon request.
No, not at all! I have 6 different colors, ranging from blonde to ebony. I also custom blend the tint to best suit each individual client and their desired outcome. If you don’t want your brows to be dark, that‘s ok! A lighter tint obviously will fade quicker than a darker one however, again the decision is yours!
For most people, the answer is yes, it does. However, for some people, it’s the opposite. This is not something I can control nor guarantee. I make every effort to ensure that you do get a great result. Again, the only way to truly find out is to try it for yourself.
Initially, the color will appear darker until your first face washing (please wait 24 hours). The pigment will lighten up significantly after the first wash.
However, if you want to fade your henna, use products like face cleansers and exfoliators.
Yes and no – while the treatment isn’t harmful to you or the baby (unless you’re allergic, of course), during pregnancy the body changes so much. Due to hormonal changes, you can see big changes to hair growth cycles, how hair behaves under certain conditions and with certain treatments, and you can even see a change in skin type and sensitivity. In short, it’s really difficult to predict what kind of results you’ll get during pregnancy (and breastfeeding!) so it’s better to not have the treatment.
